Winter Therapy
« on: October 14, 2017, 10:17:45 PM »
I keep thinking I want a 701 Husky, but flinch at the price.  :-\  As a remedy I found this sweet 05 XR 650 R tagged street legal with the plan to make it my own, including specific set up and a plethora of goodies.  The project will be a fantastic way to recover from the stab wound I acquired wrestling with a wayward avocado during the fall rally, subsequent repair of my severed index flexor tendons, all while keeping my mind right as riding is delayed as a result thereof... 

Look ahead and you'll shred...

Gotta watch those wayward avocados.  They can be sneaky little buggers.
Sounds like a fine way to spend recovery.  I promised myself I will not get injured for the Spring rally next year.

All torn down.  Engine passed a leak down, so I will leave it alone for now.  Ordered all new linkage bearings, and sent the forks and shock to precision concepts to perform their magic.  Ordered custom graphics, and going to purchase/install warp 9 wheel set.  More to come...
